The annual Celebration of Life Women’s Triathlon draws over 400 athletes to Nevada City for a locally cherished event benefiting the Barbara Schmidt fund at the Breast Imaging Center of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

This September event, which is geared to include every level of participant, starts with a 1/2-mile swim at Scotts Flat Lake, is followed by an 11-mile bike ride, and ends with a 3-mile run. The bike and run segments wind through the hilly streets of Cascade Shores at an elevation of 3,200 feet. Visit www.bsmtri.org for further event information and registration as of June.
